The Social Security Fairness Act (S. 1302/H.R. 82) and the Social Security 2100 Act (S. 3071/H.R.5723) would fully repeal the Government Pension Offset (GPO) and Windfall Elimination Provision (WEP) that together deprive more than 2.5 million dedicated public servants, including many educators, of Social Security benefits they have earned.
Retired educators are actively engaged in our advocacy efforts, pushing for floor and committee votes on both bills. The Social Security Fairness Act has more than 260 co-sponsors in the House, enough to pass. The Social Security 2100 has about 200 co-sponsors in the House, short of the 218 needed if every member is present for the vote.
